Spokane, Wash.—Kick off day-2 of the Spokatopia Outdoor Adventure Festival July 14 with a 5K trail run on scenic singletrack at Spokane’s Camp Sekani Park. With enough distance and elevation to make for an invigorating run for experienced trail runners, the course is also perfect for runners who are new to trails.
A brief, optional trail running clinic covering the basics before the race will provide tips to help make the transition from running on pavement to trails more intuitive. The first and second place male and female finishers will take home awesome prizes from race sponsors Black Diamond and Altra, and there will be a drawing after the race from the pool of all registered runners for more sponsor swag.
The $20 race registration includes a Spokatopia bandana and a weekend Adventure Pass to the Spokatopia Outdoor Adventure Festival (July 13-14). After the run, take advantage of a free “yoga for everyone” class that will include some special poses for runners and cyclists. And if you’ve ever wanted to give running with poles a try, Black Diamond will have demo pairs on hand all weekend at Spokatopia for you to check out on the trails at Camp Sekani.
